Hi, I’m Bridget Petty, I’m 37 and a married mum of two young girls, I'm keen to give something back to my community and represent you on North Somerset council. I’ve worked internationally in East Africa as well as Bristol and London in the private sector and over the past 10 years in not for profits and community centred work. I have excellent communication skills and enjoy working with people of all ages and from all backgrounds. Recently finishing maternity leave in 2018, I will return to my work in the building of social housing.
Both sets of grandparents lived in or near Backwell. Since living in Backwell I’ve been a keen volunteer locally and become involved in the campaign to improve access at the train station. As a child I appreciated learning to swim in Backwell pool, I want it to continue to be a great place for all residents now and in the future.
